Daily Debrief: Checking in on the health and soul of Yahoo

In Thursday's Daily Debrief, CNET News.com's Kara Tsuboi and Dan Farber discuss the state of the company almost six months after Microsoft's initial takeover bid.


In Thursday's edition of the Daily Debrief, I chat with CNET News.com Editor in Chief Dan Farber about the state of Yahoo. Company news seems to emerge on a daily basis, but what does it all really mean? Farber, who has his finger on the pulse of the company, explains that at least personnel-wise, the search giant has been in a state of turmoil for the last year and a half.

Also, ever since February, when Microsoft came to Yahoo with intent to acquire, the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company has been on the defensive. Farber argues that we haven't really seen or heard of plans for it to move forward. Are they simply holding out for more money? Or does it have legitimate reasons for wanting to maintain its independence?
